Designed to help those who are considering a career that enables them to travel or live abroad or to work in an international field, this guide will be especially helpful to college and graduate school students, graduates with advanced degrees, professionals exploring alternative careers, and college-bound high school students, and will also be a useful resource for career counselors, job placement offices, and libraries. Listed are more than 250 sources of employment in international business, banking, finance, international law, journalism, consulting, nonprofit organizations, the United States government, the United Nations, and other international organizations. Each of the listings provides a brief description of the organization, the size of the professional staff, the number of professionals hired in the last year, qualifications for employment, internships where available, application procedures, and address. Also included are introductory essays by outstanding representatives of the different professions described, an annotated bibliography, and a listing of graduate programs. (BZ)
